Question about Briggs & Stratton Power Products 5,550 Watt Portable Generator #30241
Your float is likely sticking open, or more likey has a pinhole leak and is now full of fuel. The float isn't able to rise to level of fuel in the bowl and allow the needle to sit into the seat. The seat could also be damaged / have debris on it. First thing to do is remove the carburetor to check for debris and such in the bowl. Then check float, needle, and seat. Since you have the carburetor off anyways, put a rebuild kit in it.
